Family Traditions with Susie

Hello and Welcome! Susie here today with a simple fall layout using some of the wonderful papers from Sheer Joy!  The beautiful oranges in this collection are perfect for scrapping your family pumpkin patch pictures!

I started by cutting a mat for my 5"x7" photo from Sheer Joy 300.  I lightly distressed the edges and inked them with Java PowderPuff Chalking Ink.  I added some twine to the left side of the photo.  I layered that on top of a larger mat cut from Sheer Joy 700, which I inked with Rusty Nail PowderPuff Chalking Ink. The Quick Quotes Holiday Bundle is a great collection of themed cardstock and vellum quotes.  I found the perfect sentiment for my layout and inked the edges with Java.  I used foam dot adhesive to pop it up on my layout.  I inked the manila tag with Rusty Nail and tucked it behind the photo mats.

The Fall Leaves Bag O'Chips had the perfect chipboard accent for this layout.  I let them trail across the layout from the top right to the bottom left and then added a coordinating chipboard title.

PowderPuff Chalking Inks - Java, Rusty Nail

I then embellished my layout with Chipboard Diecut Stickers leaving the main focus on my photo. I love this photo of the two of my children. The oldest has since moved away, so it’s a nice reminder of the bond that they share.

Off the Page with Dana!

Hi Quick Quotes fans! Dana here today sharing a home decor piece.

I've been trying to organize my craft room and found the beautiful Cracklin' Rose collection, one of my favorites, at the bottom of a drawer. As I familiarized myself with this line again, I found this fabulous chipboard tag in the Cracklin' Rose Chipboard Die Cuts. I'm still trying to work out a Halloween costume and this Cinderella quote grabbed my eye. I thought this was a great message to live by, especially for more than one night! I now have this frame sitting in my craft room as a gentle reminder.

I started this piece with a 3x3 inch natural wood frame that I then stained. I applied a molding paste circle pattern to the frame and once that was dry, colored the raised pattern with Creamy Cocoa PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I hot glued a collection of flowers and leaves to complement the colors of the tag to the frame and then attached the tag to the center.

Club Q Inspiration with Cathy

Hi everyone! Cathy here with you today sharing a layout created with the October Club Q Kit! 

It features some of my favorite papers from the Baggage Claim collection. I just love the colors and I am drawn to this collection over and over.

The kit also has fun Fall chipboard pieces and tags! I love the look of the cascading leaves and adding a tag for an extra layer. I inked my Fall Title and leaves with a combination of Rusty Nail and Creamy Cocoa PowderPuff Chalking Inks. It was a very subtle change to the chipboard, but close up you can see the marbling and color that the inks added.

I added a few finishing toughed with some arrows, a little twine, a few rhinestones and a great sentiment quote from the kit also!

Mixed Media Card with Thandar

Hello All, This is Thandar, coming to show you a mixed media card that I have created Quick Quotes papers and chipboards.

I have used Calypso chipboard and Serendipidy paper for this card. I had so much fun with splattering and splashing on the background. I have splattered some watered down acrylic paint. I, then, stain a little piece of cheese cloth using powder puff inks. I have also added little pieces of dry wall tape to add more texture to the card.

Finally, above all textures. I have added chipboard film strips and sentiment. I have also added ribbons that comes with August Club Q to further embellish the card. I really love the way the card turned out.

Falling for Club Q with Rhonda

Happy Thursday to you!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog with a little fall inspiration with pieces of the October Club Q Kit.

This month's kits are full of all kinds of cute leaf chipboard elements and tags.

I used a variety of our PowderPuff Chalk Inks to color my leaves, from Java, Green with Envy and Rusty Nail.  I used Baja Blue and some Tahiti on my title work.  I took the title and cut it apart and reassembled it a bit of a playful manner.

Once I assembled it, I added some Patina stickles on the F and Glossy Accents on the rest of the letters. A few extras elements from my stash completed the layout, I added arrows, enamel dot as and a flair.

Mixing it Up with Donna!

Hi Donna Coughlin here today with a layout I did using up lots of scraps.

I really mixed and matched different lines from Quick Quotes to bring you this fall layout. I counted 7 different lines, some of which you would think would not even go with a fall layout like Calypso and Patterned Perfect. That is what is so great about double sided paper!

I also used several types of Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalk Inks on my chipboard. These inks are great for blending different colors. I found it best to start with the lighter colors and then work up to the darker colors. Be sure to let dry in between colors or else you can ruin your ink pad. I've done that a couple times before I learned my lesson!

Cards Inspiration with Barb

Hi there! Barb here to host the blog today!

I absolutely love this time of year…. the weather is amazing, fall decorations are displayed and pumpkin bread is being made!  :) Normally I am a layout kind of gal, but I needed a few cards to send out so I decided to give it a try!

The Cherry Truffle line of papers was perfect for my fall themed cards! And I love that both of these cards were made with the same line, yet they are completely different!

I love the elegant look of this Cherry Truffle Paper. The reds and browns are perfect for fall!

Here is another look at the card opened up. It leaves a nice place for writing a personal note! The lined paper inside the card is from the Cracklin' Rose 6x6 paper pad.

I LOVE Quick Quotes chipboard leaves! I added some gold mist to add a little sparkle to the card!

How fun is this yellow gingham paper? I thought it was perfect for the scarecrow sticker I had laying around! The brown background paper came from the Cracklin' Rose 6x6 paper pad. The card is simple but perfect for the person it was made for!

Quick Quotes Supplies Used: 
Patterned Paper: Cherry Truffle
Patterned Paper: Cracklin' Rose 6x6 Paper Pad
PowderPuff Chalking Ink: Amaretto, Mocha Mama
Bag O' Chips: Fall Leaves

Autumn Inspiration with Jen

Hi Quick Quotes fans!  It's Jen here to host the blog for you.

The days are getting colder, so how about some Fall inspiration? I created this card using the beautiful papers from the Cracklin' Rose paperline. I inked the edges of all of my papers with Java PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I then double matted and pop dotted the large sentiment at the top of the card.

I knotted a piece of Ribbon and wrapped the ends around one of the papers before gluing it down to my card base. I then added a second sentiment that was double matted and pop dotted at the bottom of my card.

Fall Inspiration with Dana!

Hi Quick Quotes fans! Dana here today sharing a fall inspired layout. In addition to the rich browns, oranges and reds of the traditional fall color palette, I've added in some teal and blue for a fun twist.

I've mixed patterned papers from the Sheer Joy, Serendipity and Calypso collections on this page. I added some subtle script stamping using Creamy Cocoa PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I used Java PowderPuff Chalking Ink along the edges of all the patterned papers for a stronger contrast.

I used this sentiment that I cut from the Serendipity Words and Phrases Strip for a long title. I dressed it up with some pearl accents.

I used the Fall Leaves Bag o' Chips in two ways on this page. I separated the leaves from the circles and stacked the circles to created a layered embellishment. I colored these pieces with Java PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I also scattered the leaves around the page. I left the leaf die-cuts in their raw state and embellished them with rhinestones for a touch of sparkle.
